For $60, today's deal gets you a two-person team registration to the New Belgium Brewing Urban Assault Ride on Sunday, May 22 (up to a $120 value). Participants must register online by Friday, May 20 or in-person at the information packet pick-up on Saturday, May 21. The Urban Assault Ride sends bi-wheeled lads and lasses on a citywide bicycle scavenger hunt, where driven teams of pedal pushers scour Chicago for checkpoints containing whimsical obstacle courses. Each course is kept under wraps until the race, but past colorful challenges have included human bowling, piggyback polo, and paperboy relay. Teams will choose their own route and check-point order for the concrete journey, speeding off from Murphy's Bleachers on North Sheffield before venturing out in search of checkpoints and two mystery checkpoints. The team to cruise through all checkpoints in the shortest amount of time wins, and the top-three road-warrior duos will receive prizes for their valiant efforts, such as Timbuk2 bags, Keen shoes, and Urban Assault Ride socks and arm warmers. After crossing the finish line, all teams can celebrate at the after-party, teeming with New Belgium beer, big wheels, and raffle prizes. Aside from providing an exhilarating experience, the Urban Assault Ride helps promote and encourage bicycle commuting and does its civic cyclical duty by implementing myriad environmental practices and contributing their proceeds to local nonprofits.
